What would it mean to life as we know it if we didn’t feel safe anywhere?
What if even in our homes there was the chance of being taken out? What if society disintegrated in an untrustworthy world where no one was safe from anyone?
How sad life would be to think that even in our kitchen we could be taken out by someone thinking it was sport and that we didn’t matter.
We see so much killing, all of it senseless and pointless and one wonders if total anarchy is not so far away.
One of the greatest gifts we can give to preserve life is the valour and courage needed to save the life of another. We saw it recently in Las Vegas where the courage of so many gave us all hope that our world does have good people in it.
We have to believe that to be true as we only have to look at what occurs within any society when disaster happens. We see people rise above their stations, step forward and commit to doing whatever is necessary to preserve life and see that an injured person known to them and more often a stranger is there by their side administering life support in whatever way they can.
It never ceases to amaze that despite the onslaught of publicity from the scaremongers who crave nothing but the limelight, the good people have figured them out and are ever ready to turn their backs on their distorted rhetoric and do what they know to be right and what is needed to keep you and me safe.
